wall. >> right. >> and standing there ripped up after a fight, you do look like a wall. >> right. >> what did you mean by that. >> i felt that i could take him. i felt that i could beat manny pacquiao. i felt deep inside, man, i could beat this guy. why are you a wall? what do you mean break down this wall? >> 28 guys have tried. and 28 has failed. manny pacquiao, great fighter, man. but he can't break me. >> they're running to you, they're running into a wall. >> he can't break me down. >> how do you break that wall, fred? >> to break that wall down is not going to be easy, of course. it's a very strong wall. it's young. we will break it down and we will get him out of there in the late rounds. >> part of what brought tim bradley to this point, is not just how fast he is or how hard he hits because, tim, i've seen faster and harder hitting fighters. not even how skillful he is. he's not whitaker or mayweather or someone like that. but it's the level of
9:48 pm
determination that's different from ordinary fighters p even from good fighters. when he says come break down this wall, part of that's physical. you look at the way he's put together. but really, that will to win and the refusal to give up on himself. do you mean you can break his will. or you just have to break his will down physically? or are you saying anyone can be broken? >> anyone can be broken. yes. >> can you be broken? >> no. >> we'll see. we'll see. >> you're definitely going to see. >> where was that come from? where does that come from, do you think, that iron will? >> where? from his heart. he has a big heart. he doesn't stop. he takes that extra boost after the sixth round. and he gets stronger in the later rounds. you want to take him out, you need to take him out before he's warmed up yet. >> does that mean that early on,
9:49 pm
you have to take it easy because you don't want to get caught cold. >> we always do that. >> tim, i can tell when it gets to a boiling point with you. up here, it starts to move because you're grinding your teeth. and you seem to do that every time someone talks about your determination or how hard you're working. like you stake your whole existence on that. what does that mean to you? >> i just feel like going to work right now. i get balled up. this is the biggest moment in my career. i have to win this fight. i'm not going to take no for an answer, man. you know, constantly thinking about what i've got to do when i get home. >> we've seen you box carefully. we've seen you brawl. >> right. >> we've seen you use your head. we've seen you do a lot of things in there. what style are you bringing nor this fight? >> a little bit of everything. manny is a warrior. he's a warrior. he's a champion. a great champion.
9:50 pm
number one guy in the game. you know, he's going to fight, man. he's going to fight to the end. >> are you worried about that at all? >> sure. i don't think he's a dirty fighter at all. he comes in head-first. we'll be ready for that. as he comes forward with his head, he will come with punches. >> i see a danger in that. orthodox fighter, against a southpaw. a guy who use said, you're going to start carefully because the only way you think he's going to get stopped is if he gets caught cold. if manny's up a couple rounds, a couple points and it's early in the fight, and there's an accidental clash of heads and manny gets cut and they stop the fight, you could lose on a technical decision. have you thought about that? >> i thought about everything. i thought about everything since the day they told the fight was
9:51 pm
on. we'll just have to put up a good strategy of -- i know, that's in the early rounds we have to be careful. >> any thoughts about this point about that, fred? >> i've seen tim fight many times on tv and live. i know what he's about. i know his style. will he adapt for manny pacquiao? he will change some things? i'm sure he will. same as i'm going to watch tapes and come up with a strategy. we're going to change a little bit also. when it comes down to it. they start hitting each other and he's going to revert to back what he is. >> which is? >> explosive fighters. they're going to go toe-to-toe. that's why i like this fight so much. it's not on an easy fight. but entertainment-wise, this is as good as you can have.

are you thinking when you look at tim bradley right now? >> he's not opponent for us. three titles under his belt. he comes to fight. and he and manny together, will be as explosive. and time remaining to look impressive. >> prediction on the fight? >> freddie said the other day, that all fights should end up in a knockout. if we can, we're going to make his wish come true. if we catch him, we'll end up in a knockout. we'll put him away. at the end of the day, we have to do more than marquez did that night to come out victorious. >> freddie, prediction of the fight? >> it's going to be action-packed.
